NMR Facilities

NMR spectrometersThe Chemistry Department is equipped with five NMR spectrometers used in research and teaching:

  • Liquid State Varian VNMRS 600 MHz, with a cold probe. The system is used for multinuclear, multidimensional high-resolution NMR studies.
  • Liquid State Varian VNMRS 500 MHz with a narrow-bore ultra shield plus magnet. The system has three channels and pulsed field gradients.
  • Solid State Varian INOVA 400 MHz, used for solid-state CPMAS and multinuclear, NMR studies.
  • Liquid State and Micro Imaging Bruker Avance 400 MHz, with a wide-bore magnet. It is dedicated to multinuclear and variable temperature high-resolution NMR experiments.
  • Liquid State Varian Mercury Vx 300 MHz. Used in undergraduate and graduate courses; it has 1H, 13C, 19F, and 31P capabilities.

Location: Buehler 216 (Bruker 400), Buehler 665A (Varian 300) and SERF 230 (Varian 400, Varian 500 and Varian 600)

The flagship campus of the University of Tennessee System and partner in the Tennessee Transfer Pathway.
